The Honorable Judge William Earl Bolle (1939-2021) served on the 52nd District Court, Fourth Division, from its creation in 1978 til his retirement in 2014 (when he was the longest-seated judge in Oakland County). Bill was also a highly regarded jazz bassist who regularly performed around southeastern Michigan. In 2006, he and his wife Sally took over leadership of the Greater Detroit Jazz Society, avidly promoting musical events and sponsoring numerous concerts. Sally Bolle is a MJF Board member and lovingly memorializes Bill with this stage sponsorship.
